I had two Aunt Delmas. One I have written about before. She was my daddy’s sister. When she passed, I was left as the oldest in our “blood” family. I did, however, have another Aunt Delma who was my aunt by way of marriage. She married one of my younger uncles. He passed a few years ago. This Aunt Delma passed today.

The oldest of a string of girls, seven, I think, she was a very pretty girl. One of her sisters married my brother.

I especially owe to her my relatively large brain drawer in which I keep Bible trivia! She was my class teacher for several years. I’m sure I have mentioned her in my blog before.

Back to a funny personal story she told me. It is the reason for my title, Over-Tired Farmer.

From my Face Book Status:

Aunt Delma told me that Uncle Loy woke her in the night. He was asleep, but had a grip on her big toe. She asked what he was doing. The best I remember he told her he was trying to get that tractor turned around.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    That gave me a giggle, although I’m sorry for your loss. 🙏
